    I really like Ceiba. Their drinks are very good and I have enjoyed the 3-4 full meals I've had there (I've mostly just had cocktails and appetizers in the lounge). I don't know if I've ever had fish there though. I know it seems like a "lesser food" but I remember having a great quadadilla there. Their guacamole is also very good, as is the queso (in a lava rock!).

    Never been to D'Aqua but interested to hear what you think of it. This is a restaurant you don't hear much about but I'm pretty sure the specialize in seafood.

      I had the sea urchin pasta at D'Acqua. Forgot what else I had. but they do have lots of fresh seafood to pick from. The sea urchin pasta is very good. Another place I really like for seafood is Corduroy. I haven't been to Ceiba (but I don't plan on going either).

        I don't think anyone really goes to either of these two spots. For fish go to the Oceanaire or Blacksalt. Then there is the fact that you can get great fish at many many dc restaurants.

          Ceiba is pretty good, but most people end up @ Cafe Atlantico. For seafood, I don't think Ceiba's much of a stand out.
